Default Painted my .22 Rifle- PINK !!

Ok, my girlfriend's birthday is coming up and i'm short for $$, she loves pink, pink knives, guns, everything, but she don't own a gun yet herself and wants one so I look a .22 rifle that I bought 3 years ago at Walmart(barely 200 rounds through it), slapped a few coats of Rustoleum paint for plastic(add a lot of elbow grease), and a pink camo gun case, and I got a decent gift that I barely put $30 in to. What do you think?

Ninja,

Looks like you did a fantastic job on the rifle. Looks like it came that way!
They also have that clear plastic coat also if needed to increase durability! Who would have known if you had not explained everything!
And besides, that should earn you some valuable points with the wife!
Good Job!

Thanks guys, I didn't think it looked that great until you guys said so, I thought it was average, I never painted a gun before. It took a good 3 coats and a lot of rubbing compound, the last coat is only been on for 4 days so it does need to cure a bit yet before I give it to her.

That is a great gift. Well done. And you are bringing a new gun owner into the fold.

I have looked at the pink rifles before.
I would never guess this did not come like this from the factory.

The case is a GREAT touch!
